Notes on Taxonomy: [Edit]

This taxon has been deprecated in MO without an accepted synonym because it has been replaced by a combination of three new taxa, and MO cannot synonymize Boletus regus sensu Thiers with all those taxa without also (improperly) synonymizing the new taxa with each other.
Three newly described species — Butyriboletus autumniregius, Butyriboletus primiregius, and Butyriboletus querciregius — together comprise Thiers’ (1975) concept of Boletus regius.1
